Main Arena

Main arena at Electric Picnic Festival

Main Stage

This stage has played host to some of the biggest artists on the planet. Such is the magnetic draw of Electric Picnic’s Main Stage, that it has been moved several times to make room for more people! In 2021 it moved once again to a slightly new position on the lawns of Stradbally Hall creating even more space to watch your favourite acts. This stage has had too many iconic performances to list, but some of its most special highlights include The Prodigy’s final performance with Keith Flint in 2018, Billie Eilish, Pulp, Bjork, Kendrick Lamar, Dua Lipa, Arctic Monkeys, Florence and the Machine, Nile Rogers and Chic, Roxy Music, The Killers, Grace Jones, Blur, Lana Del Rey, The Cure, Arcade Fire, Outkast, Massive Attack, Hozier and Foals.

The Electric Arena

Electric Picnic’s second stage is a sprawling tented arena just behind the Main Stage. Big enough to draw some of Picnic’s biggest crowds, but just the perfect size to make the performances feel intimate. The Electric Arena has hosted an eclectic assortment of artists throughout the years spanning indie, electronica, hip hop and pop. Stand out performances include Florence and The Machine, Charli XCX, Ed Sheeran, Sigrid, Annie Mac, The Coronas, Interpol, Wolf Alice, & Bat For Lashes.

Rankin’s Wood

Perched at the corner of Stradbally’s ancient Rankin’s Woods, this tented stage has been the venue for some of Electric Picnic’s most vibrant performances down through the years. With a very eclectic programme, you are equally as likely to stumble into a mosh pit, an anthemic singalong, or a full blown rave. Some of the most recent highlights include Nina Kravitz, Mount Kimbie, Dermot Kennedy, Echo and the Bunnymen, Michael Kiwanuka, Savages, Ride, and Neneh Cherry.

Cosby Tent

This tent is one of the best places on site to catch some of the world’s hottest established and breakthrough acts in an intimate setting. Past alumni include: Wolf Alice, girl in red, Sons of Kemet, Jorja Smith, Sleaford Mods, Perfume Genius, and even a budding young Lewis Capaldi! This is the headquarters of new music at Electric Picnic. Don’t say you weren’t warned!
